Gamay Wismer Foxcroft
About this winery
Canada’s fruit basket – one of the southernmost parts of Canada - an idyllic little peninsula with a unique microclimate due to the ocean-like Great lakes that surround it. Dolomitic Limestone abounds here - interspersed with clay - giving the wines intense perfume; a rich mouthfeel and a defining iron grip that speaks of the Escarpment where the grapes are grown – the same Escarpment from whence tumble the world-famous ‘Niagara Falls.’
This is Bachelder’s first Gamay Noir and, of course, it’s a single-vineyard Gamay that was destemmed and spent 8 months in neutral French oak barrels.
The nose rocks with overt plums, juicy red fruits, earth and light spice notes. It’s highly gulpable on the palate with a range of succulent and juicy fruits, savoury notes and a touch of spice.
